Last week we checked out the Northern Fauquier Community Park in Fauquier County. This is a beautiful park with a lot for everyone in the family. My boys favorite part of the park was the fishing lake and painted paw prints on the walking trail that denoted the path that had dog waste bins.
The park has many different ball fields, walking trails, eight picnic shelters, 3 playgrounds, amphitheater, and fishing lake. The playgrounds are situated near three different parts of the park. The largest of the three playgrounds has nice indoor restrooms within about 15 feet of the play area. The play area had a little bit of shade near the equipment and several picnic shelters nearby to sit down and get out of the sun. In addition to the two pieces of play equipment this play area has both regular and toddler swings.
The other two play areas were situated near different ends of the park and near ball fields. Each play area had one piece of play equipment and restrooms were located near each site.
In addition to all the play areas and ball fields the park has an amphitheater and eight different picnic pavilions that are available for rental.
This is a great park and very well maintained. This would be a great spot for a family picnic or other family events. If you live in Fauquier County or just want to take a trip out to Marshall I highly recommend Northern Fauquier Community Park.
